Reviews of The Village of Taunton Mills

Gain exclusive insight into life at The Village of Taunton Mills. Comfort Life’s reviews give you exclusive insider information.

Our perspective

You'll love it at Taunton Mills if you miss that old small town feeling of yesteryear and the easy friendliness that fostered. There's also a wide variety of activities to choose from, including exercising with friends, reading in the library, horseshoes, movie nights, or just hanging out on the patio in the summer. Onsite pampering includes a beauty salon and barber shop.

This lives up to the title of village. The layout of the building follows very much from the idea of a small town, its central town square holding a number of "shops" to browse and meet up with friends. Places you'll find in the village centre (a commons area) include a library, a theatre, a café, a general store and a pub. Unlike most Ontario towns, though, there's never any cold weather or rain. It has to be seen to be believed.

Levels of care available in the Village of Taunton Mills range from independent to assisted living. Assistance in Schlegel Villages does not apply a cookie-cutter approach, however. The individual needs of residents are looked at, and care offered is resident-centred. The attitude of staff here is not that seniors live where the staff works, but "we work in your home."

Trish Blackburn, family member

My dad received fabulous care from all the staff - especially his Taunton Mills family in the Claremont Neighbourhood. The lines of communication were always open and we knew of any and all issues - and that gave us peace of mind. Thank you for everything you did for him including making him as comfortable as possible in his last days. And thank you for always making sure he got his "ice cream."

Gail McMonagle, family member

Our mother has been a retirement resident for 14 years and lived in an independent suite on the 6th floor of the north building for all of those years. She recently had a fall and she decided to move to the first floor. The help and guidance that we received from the staff was so amazing. They were all so very kind and considerate and answered all of our questions, always returning phone calls and doing whatever they could to make the move seamless. The suite was all set up for our mother upon her return. She was greeted by many staff members and was made to feel so welcome. We are very thankful for all of the assistance.

Peggy Hogan, family member

My parents moved into an Independent Living Suite in the South Tower back in 2020; my Mom was moved into the Dryden neighbourhood in long-term-care in December of 2021 due to her Alzheimer's. I give credit to the staff as I spent a fair bit of time there and I had the opportunity to see how challenging it could be - for the most part they were all great. My Mom became ill in February 2023 and ended up in palliative care in her room, and was treated with kindness and compassion during her final days. I give special credit to Diane McLean - the neighbourhood coordinator of Dryden as she was always there when we needed her which meant more than she could know.

Jason Huygaerts, family member

The staff here are amazing. [My grandma] has lived here for years now with dementia. They give her outstanding care and you can easily see the love that they have for all of the residents here. By far the best retirement home I have ever had the pleasure of visiting. If I could give them 6 stars, I would. ❤❤❤❤

Elaine Phillips, family member

Leann Broome, family member

My Dad, Alan Cobel, lived on the retirement side from March 2016-July 17, 2019. He loved it here! The staff are exceptional! They work hard and we greatly appreciated it! There was always something going on for entertainment and friends to be made.

Ellen, family member

My mother was in three retirement homes over the past year and [she now has a home] in the Long Term Care Facility on the Perry Wing. Everyday is special here. [Everyone here is] empathetic, professional, knowledgeable and friendly ... They all work together so well. I am thoroughly impressed and would recommend the Village Of Taunton Mills to everyone.

Stephanie H., family member

This is a great place to live. I visit a few times a month and am impressed every time. The residents are happy, you can tell.

Myrla, resident

When you have friends who you chat, laugh with, talk with... that is true happiness.
